Fox just might have some real competition coming to them…finally! Glenn Beck is now on DISH satellite friends, I bet with time his network will do nothing but expand when it comes to audience viewing. We’ve all yearned for a real conservative network that will stay conservative as time goes on, seems we finally have one with The Blaze network…hope you all give it a try if you’re able to. I’ve been watching some of the shows when I can, on one of the shows Beck explained they are still in the process of making more shows and features…including real investigative reports, as well as documentaries they’re still putting together. Don’t know about all of you…but I’m sure looking forward to the upcoming changes as they get everything in place.

Here’s a recent report…this is via TB:

Exactly one year ago, Glenn Beck introduced the world to GBTV and aired his inaugural episode of The Glenn Beck Program. Today, GBTV, now TheBlazeTV — is the most subscribed-to online network and celebrated its anniversary with the addition of a return to traditional television as well on DISH Network channel 212.

Below is a montage of the past year’s memorable moments:

Beck also relived milestones achieved by TheBlaze, including attaining a readership of over 9 million Americans each month, and discussed next phase of his multi-media network:

I’ve often said ‘Hope Springs Eternal’ while many of us complained about the network bias yearning for a real conservative network…looks like that ‘hope’ is finally on the way! Fox better be on notice…what say you?

  1. I’m glad Beck is doing what he can to promote his network, and I hope he gets even bigger than FOX (which I’m pretty sick of by now).

    There’s just one thing that’s been nagging at me for some time now. How come there hasn’t already been another conservative alternative to FOX News? Yes, there’s Beck’s network, but it’s only now beginning to grow and hasn’t as of yet been embraced by conservatives the way FOX has. Unless you live under a rock, you’ve got to know by now that there’s a HUGE audience for news from a conservative angle. It seems to me that there would be so much money to be made in it too. So again, why hasn’t a group of investors collaborated to produce a CONSISTENTLY conservative news network?

    • Many of us have asked that same question for years…my answer is I don’t know…it’s been beyond me.

      Beck on one of his shows I watched this morning said he didn’t want to be owing to anyone, so it took him awhile to be able to get to where he is now back on the Boob-Tube etc etc….I’m just hoping others will be watching and supporting his channel now. They’re going to have complete election coverage too…can’t wait! 😉

  3. I don’t have Dish network, I have DirecTV, hopefully they will carry Beck’s channel in the future. I would abandon Fox in a flash.

    • I was glad to have DISH at the time…so I’m lucky that way. Hope you’re right about DirectTV eventually adding them…but it may be quite awhile yet.

      • YonLibertarianCO says:

        Same here with DirecTV (NFL sunday ticket!!). The ratings should eventually make them cave. After all, if they carry Lifetime and LOGO it shouldn’t take much…

        • 79firebirdman says:

          LOGO, Ugh!! I have LOGO programmed out of my channel list. I don’t want a bunch of queers degrading my TV and home with their filthy and unnatural lifestyle.

  4. I find far better coverage of news on the net and don’t have to be insulted with mind numbing commercials. Haven’t had a TV in my house in 10 years, don’t miss it at all.
    Wish Glenn all the best. Hope he makes it.

  5. If he succeeds it won’t be from any help from me. I haven’t forgiven him for accusing me and other Gingrich supporters of racism. Something he never apologized for. I get it that he didn’t like Gingrich, but playing the race card like all good liberals turned me off Beck for good.

    • Wow…never heard about that. Do you have a link?

      Btw…he never made me one bit happy about the birth certificate questions, but when it comes to one person and all of us not agreeing with their opinions all the time won’t stop me from hoping his network channel doesn’t do well, we need competition now more than ever.

      • Here’s just one, but you can google it and also find video on YouTube.

        • Thanks so much…read that and the update from Mediaite too, Beck wasn’t talking about the race of a person…he was talking about the race in the primary itself. I don’t know how anyone can think differently about that…but that’s just how I see it.

          • I don’t understand your statement at all. What Beck said was that Obama was a progressive and Newt was a progressive (according to Beck). Therefore, if you are a Tea Party person and support Newt over Obama, then the only reason could be that you are a racist. That is how many, many people interpreted that statement, as did I.

            This is the actual quote:
            “So if you’ve got a big government progressive or a big government progressive in Obama, one in Newt Gingrich, one in Obama, ask yourself this Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race. It’s the policies that matter.”

  6. I love what Beck said here……The left will opine for the day Beck had only 1 hour on television……….

    Go for it Beck……this is great……the left will scream their asses off………I’ll bet the left will try their stupid boycotts to remove Beck from the air……..bully and threaten advertisers……create nuisance lawsuits…..the left will go crazy when his viewership increases and then just keeps on increasing even more……..

    Rub it in their faces, Glenn, rub it in their faces……..

    Take the “”Left”” apart………

    • Bluto…

      Have you caught any of the shows on DISH yet? I’ve been listening to some now about real people that Mitt and wife helped in more ways than one. Think it was broadcast last night. Glad I’m catching it now…talk about getting one misty-eyed!

      We’ll never hear any of this on the msm…ever!

      • Unfortunately I don’t have dish…… Direct TV

        • Thanks for the reply….we were with DirectTV for years before moving into this place. Glad I switched and bundled in more ways that one at the moment. – Hopefully more carriers will want to include Beck’s network too.

  7. It stands to reason that the most conservative, anti-Obama foe from the Fox News roster, would go on to produce his own news worthy network! I wish Beck all the best of luck but he has an extremely difficult road ahead of him! Flooded with way too many moderate-conservative haters who are simply looking forward to the opportunity of crushing their conservative competitors, far more than the average liberal!

    • It’ll be a hard road indeed…but I know he knows that full well. One thing about it Renee…we are the silent majority, there are a heckuva a lot more of us than the moderates or progressive leftist loons.

      Personally, I think as time goes on and his format gets in gear this will be a huge boost for millions, far more than most people think. – I could be wrong…time will tell.

  8. IowaDawg…thank you so much for the pingback. Much appreciated. 😉

    • Big,
      I just visited… then bookmarked.. Iowadawg’s website. Fantastic. Hope others will check it out as well. Here’s just a sample that was cross-posted from the website “Knuckledraggin’ My Life Away:”

      What Men!!!

      “I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.” — John Adams

      “[L]iberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.” — John Adams, 1765

      “Let justice be done though the heavens should fall.” — John Adams in a letter in 1777

      “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” — Samuel Adams, 1779

      “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” — Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the Declaration of Independence

      “They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” — Ben Franklin, 1759

      “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.” — Ben Franklin, 1766

      “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” — Nathan Hale’s last words before being hanged by British

      “There! His Majesty can now read my name without glasses. And he can double the reward on my head!” — John Hancock after signing his name in large letters on the Declaration of Independence

      “The distinctions between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, New Yorkers, and New Englanders are no more. I Am Not A Virginian, But An American!” — Patrick Henry in 1774 after the Boston Tea Party.

      “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” — Patrick Henry

      “The battle, Sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, Sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable; and let it come! I repeat, Sir, let it come!” — Patrick Henry

      “They tell us Sir, that we are weak — unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature has placed in our power.” — Patrick Henry

      “Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Beside, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of Nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us.” — Patrick Henry

      “That these are our grievances which we have thus laid before his majesty, with that freedom of language and sentiment which becomes a free people claiming their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1774

      “Our properties within our own territories [should not] be taxed or regulated by any power on earth but our own.” — Thomas Jefferson, 1774

      “I have not yet begun to fight!” — John Paul Jones

      “I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm’s way.” — John Paul Jones, 1778

      “One of the most essential branches of English liberty is the freedom of one’s house. A man’s house is his castle.” — James Otis, 1761

      “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their county; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny like hell is not easily conquered yet we have this consolation with us, the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.” — Tom Paine after the Declaration of Independence

      “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” — Tom Paine

      “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” — Tom Paine, 1776

      “Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.” — Captain John Parker, 1775

      “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes! Then fire low!” — Israel Putnam at the Battle Of Bunker Hill

      “Patriotism is as much a virtue as justice, and is as necessary for the support of societies as natural affection is for the support of families.” — Benjamin Rush, 1773

      “Yonder are the Hessians. They were bought for seven pounds and tenpence a man. Are you worth more? Prove it. Tonight the American flag floats from yonder hill or Molly Stark sleeps a widow!” — John Stark at the Battle of Bennington in 1777

      “Nevertheless, to the persecution and tyranny of his cruel ministry we will not tamely submit — appealing to Heaven for the justice of our cause, we determine to die or be free.” — Joseph Warren, 1775

      “We began a contest for liberty ill provided with the means for the war, relying on our patriotism to supply the deficiency. We expected to encounter many wants and distressed, we must bear the present evils and fortitude.” — George Washington in 1781

      “Our own Country’s Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world. Let us therefore rely upon the goodness of the Cause, and the aid of the supreme Being, in whose hands Victory is, to animate and encourage us to great and noble Actions — The Eyes of all our Countrymen are now upon us, and we shall have their blessings, and praises, if happily we are the instruments of saving them from the Tyranny mediated against them. Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world, that a free man contending for Liberty on his own ground is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth.” — George Washington, 1776

      “The hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are free men, fighting for the blessings of Liberty — that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men.” — George Washington, 1776

      “Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother’s sword has been sheathed in a brother’s breast and that the once-happy plains of America are either to be drenched with blood or inhabited by slaves. Sad alternative! But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?” — George Washington in a letter to a friend

      “Gentlemen, you will permit me to put on my spectacles, for I have not only grown gray, but almost blind, in the service of my country.” — George Washington to officers of the Continental Army who seemed to be plotting insurrection after Congress refused to give them aid. According to the book, “The Wars Of America,” many of the men were “overcome” and began “openly weeping.” They then agreed to “leave their problems in Washington’s hands.”


    I dont watch the news not even FOX NEWS and never ever will i ever watch CNN run by RED TED TURNER

  10. Go Glen go!

    I don’t care if he called Newtie a racist,…..although Newtie says some good things sometimes, he’s still a RINO!

  11. I watched BeckTv last nite! i had downgraded cable because I was sick of all the crap that esp HBO was spewing and wanted to wean my kids/mr. fubar off of tv. the kids are taking it ok, mr. fubar is a little harder, can’t blame him, he works alot of hours, wants to relax with boobtube for what time he does sit down. Now it’s hard for me to NOT want to watch BeckTv. I feel like our world has changed and you can no longer hear something, shake your head and walk away, to do nothing but wish the world was better. WE NEED ACTION. INformation spreading is a great way to do that.

    anyway, saw the special on Romney, highly recommend. I get a little nervous when someone is cheerleading for a politician, which Glenn seems to be doing lately, but I take what I can learn, it’s better then what the left is doing. totally reprehensible.

    There was another show where they had a panel of people discussing issues. One was the embassy burnings. This is about the only place on TV that I saw them NOT blaming that the movie. the Movie is a red herring, in order for the Caliphate to be established. In order for sharia law to be established here. These people “get it”. I can’t wait to watch more.

    (listen to Beck’s radio show every day )

    • I just watched the show you’re talking about with the people Romney has helped in the past…watching the show you’re talking about at the end of your post now.

      I can’t wait until they have this formatted well in future…as Beck said will be coming with time.

  12. btw, my fourteen year old listens to Beckradio sometimes. Last nite, she said, “THAT’S Glenn Beck!? He’s such a dork!”

    😀 lol. It kills me how ‘that dork’ scares the left. I find him highly watchable and real.

    • I can’t believe they still use the word ‘dork’ …that’s what has got me laughing more than anything. (somethings never change) 😉

  13. RidinShotgun says:

    I like Beck and listen to his radio program as much as I can, but he’s been on this groveling at the feet of certain members of the black community kick for a while and I can’t figure out why. His researchers are the best as far as I’m concerned and he’s the only one who puts Obongos real agenda/henchman’s background & soundbites out there. I wish him well though
    It’s not that Fox is conservative, it’s that all the other networks are so far off the left hand side of the page, that anyone saying anything contrary is automatically labeled as “Conservative”. O’Rielly in particular has started to swing towards the left, ever since that law suit got settled a number of years ago. He’s had too many people on who seven years ago he would have taken their heads off with tough questioning. Now he barely raises his voice.

  14. Off topic post……..

    It appears that war is coming to the Middle East….specifically Iran….

    • Great read…no one should be surprised either.

      This is one more reason we need to be dependent on our mass oil here within our own country!

    • The kettle is about to boil over. Watch what happens here if it does. We all know how this administration hates Israel.

  15. BT,

    Funny you posted this. I’m no stranger to Beck, but have not listened to him more than a couple of times prior to a month ago. Beck replaced Savage on one of our radio stations, and I started listening to him nightly while working on the computer. The guy is definitely conservative and must say I like his views… or as you often say, his viewfinder in life.

    Btw… have you seen those mountain lions strolling through your yard lately???

    • As to the cougars…No! Thank goodness…but I keep an eye wide open at all times.

      As to Beck…may he cream all the msm we have now. Like I’ve stated earlier, I haven’t agree with Beck all the time, but I sure as heck the majority of it. We’ve all yearned for some real competition with the msm…we’ve finally got it now.

  16. Folks Glenn has some great shows and is right on most of the time. GET ROKU and tune in …or the BLAZE app.

    He has a great story. Great books…did you see restoring courage…or love. He rocks. And FOX SUCKS THESE DAYS.

    SE cupp is super hot too.

    • I really enjoy SE Cupp most times…and Fox has worsened day by day, year after year.

      Just one more reason why we need someone like Beck to launch a conservative show for all to see. ~

  17. I have been watching Glenn since he was on HLN (Nancy Grace’s cnannel) Never miss his radio program.People who don’t know his way of kidding around ,don’t really understand the way he puts things sometimes. Glenn is no joke,he is fearless,and, yes I get sick of his MLK stuff. Maybe he should investigate those stories a little deeper! I don’t have dish,but,I don’t want to change,so I’ll just listen everyday. LOVE THE GUY and I believe what he says.

    • One thing about it Doris….since he’s back and TV and he gets more attention you can be sure whatever it said on that network will get playback/attack on more ways than one…I’m looking forward to it…keepin’ track too. 😉

  18.’re right ,it’s gonna be interesting ! They will start calling him crazy ….. again. doesn’t matter, he’s been right too often.

    • Yep…and Soros and sock-puppet team will be on the rampage…once again, only this time it will be the likes of which we haven’t seen…yet!

      BRING IT ON!

  21. If you can’t watch Beck’s new TV channel…check this out, it’s great. Watched it yesterday…enjoyed every minute of it.

    You can be sure the msm won’t talk about it.

  22. 79firebirdman says:

    I have Direct TV, so hoping that The Blaze comes to Direct TV soon so I will have a chance to watch. I am a regular listener of Andrew Wilkow on SiriusXM, so hiring him was definitely a smart move IMHO. I realize that it takes lots of money to launch a new network, but sure wish I could check it out. I just don’t want another subscription–Roku or Dish–to be able to watch. I was a fan of Glenn Beck on Fox and any alternative to CNN or MSDNC is alright in my book. The full story of why he left Fox hasn’t been told. I still watch Fox, but they have been steadily sliding to the left and I tire of the RINO establishment parade, so maybe the Blaze will force them back to the right, so they don’t lose any market share and we end up with two decidedly right of center networks instead of one. My blood pressure and sanity can’t handle the lefty networks and their blatant bias and dishonest reporting for more than a few minutes at a time.

    • I sure like your way of thinking when it comes to possibly forcing Fox back to the party that brung them to the dance in the first place. I do think with time Beck’s Channel is going to be huge. If DirectTV has a brain that works they will acquire his channel as well…I know one thing, when FOX first first started up I told them (this was before they were DirectTV) that I would leave them and go to where I could get Fox if they didn’t do so…etc etc. – Time will tell….no doubt about it.
